International Accreditation by  World’s  accreditation systems  have come to stay in India. From a mere 1  internationally Accredited school, namely Management Development Institute (MDI) Gurgaon in 2015, the  numbers have swollen to 120 plus today with a further 150 schools processing their international accreditation.  The extraordinary fiat has been achieved by  a strong push given by the leading Business school associations   like Association of Indian Management Schools ( AIMS) and International Accreditation advocacy  organisation SEAA (Standards for Educational Advancement & Accreditation), a New Delhi based non-profit. 

There is much work to be done still considering that there are over 3000 Business schools  today in  India and the New Education Policy NEP rightly insists that future  growth of higher education institutions  would be   anchored around high quality accreditation  received by the institutions.
